Several times recently I've ordered fried and casserole seafood dishes which include scallops. The 'scallops' look like but miss the texture and taste of our local sea scallops. Not bad but not what would expect.
Last night at an unnamed ( not Legal) place the seafood casserole was mainly scallops with a little shrimp, white fish and lobster thrown in. I commented on the number of scallops because they are pretty expensive. Next thing I knew we had a different waiter for the rest of the evening. Guess he was afraid I'd complain. I didn't out of consideration for my dining companions.
So, what's up? Are the scallops wet, imported from someplace or are they even scallops?
Has anyone else run into the same issue?
